That win takes Villa up to twelfth place. Woo hoo.

wasn’t so much a miss as a save from Guzan.
Well done Guzan. I hope you
realise that your actions could have denied vital funding to the Bobby Moore
Fund. Actually, it didn’t make any
difference at all because every prediction went pear-shaped! Norwich
So on to our third Grambler prediction -
to draw with Fleetwood. Once again The Grambler got it soooo wrong
with Fleetwood scoring the only goal of the game. Although, to be fair, it wasn’t exactly a
convincing win and could well have gone the Grambler’s way. Jamille Matt’s shot on goal rebounded off Portsmouth defender Sonny Bradley into the net. Anyway, another loss for Portsmouth sends them even further down the table to 15th
place (I tell you, it’s Conference League next year if they don’t start winning
soon) and the win moves Fleetwood up to second. Portsmouth
Our fourth game
v Inverness Caledonian Thistle was predicted by The
Grambler to end as a draw. Given that
both teams are doing well at the top end of the Scottish Premiership, with
Caley unbeaten, it looked a reasonable bet.
Of course, someone had to burst their bubble and it was Aberdeen with a narrow one nil victory. Boo.
Once again, The Grambler nearly got it right – Caley’s Graeme Shinney
had a shot ‘cleared off the line’ by Smith, but Inverness were convinced that
the ball had crossed the line. The match
officials called it Aberdeen ’s way and there was no goal. Aberdeen
The win takes
up to third in the league one point ahead of
Motherwell who play Dundee United tomorrow (Sunday). Aberdeen Inverness are still
top ahead of Celtic, but now it is only on goal difference. And Celtic have a game in hand. Expect normal service to be resumed soon.
Game number 5 took us to Hampden where The Grambler predicted a win for
against pointless Queen’s Park. By that I don’t mean that Queen’s Park are a
team with no purpose, I meant… Anyway,
it seemed a fair prediction as the Spiders were yet to take a point from any
games this season. Well, guess what –
they got a point today in a 3-3 draw.
That was probably a really exciting game. Wow six goals! Thanks all you so-called football websites
for totally ignoring this game and not even providing a match report. Yes you know who I talking about BBC. Ahem…
Anyway, by getting a draw Queen’s Park managed to give The Grambler an embarrassing
no correct predictions out of five!
Ah well, so ends my first week in charge of The Grambler blog. Not very successful I have to admit. But hey ho, in the words of D.ream (featuring the talents of grinning Professor Brian Cox) Things can only get better.
One thing before I go. Stewart’s Just Giving page is now on line so whenever you feel like it, no rush, please take the time to make a wee donation.
I’ll probably get sued by Tesco for saying it but … Every little helps.
Thank you and goodnight.
